Léon Gastinel (August 15, 1823 – October 18, 1906) was a Frenchcomposer. He studied at the Paris Conservatoire where he studied with Jacques Halévy and was awarded the Grand Prix de Rome in 1846 for his cantata Valasquez. While relatively unknown today, Gastinel wrote two complete masses, two symphonies and four oratorios, and chamber music including at least two string sextets. He was most prolific however in his works for the stage which include the ballet Le rêve (1890) and the operas Le miroir (1853), L'opéra aux fenêtres (1857) and Titus et Bérénice (1860).
